Medical Radionuclides and the Quality of Radiopharmaceuticals


Radiopharmaceutical-radiochemical quality assurance can be conveniently and rapidly performed and documented by utilization of micro-tlc radiochromatography methods and radiosotope calibrator equipped with a microprocessor and a ticket printer. The status of the micro-tlc method, methodology, and recent results are discussed in a minireview.
